Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Let the shadows round me gather,
And the day
Pass away—
Jesus Loves me.

2 Though the tide of sorrow whelm me,
In the flow
This I know—
Jesus Loves me.

3 Dearest earthly friends may leave me;
He, my own,
Stays alone—
Jesus Loves me.

4 Neither sin nor death can fright me;
Jesus died,
He’ll provide—
Jesus Loves me.
